PSG striker Mbappé fit to face Man City in today’s Champions League semi-finals

PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappé has shaken off a minor thigh injury and is fit to play against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinals on Wednesday.

Mbappé came off with the injury near the end of PSG’s 3-1 win at Metz in the French league on Saturday, jeopardizing his chances of playing in the first leg at Parc des Princes.

However, the 22-year-old Mbappé will be in the squad for the match against City, with PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino saying Tuesday that left back Juan Bernat and reserve goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier are the only players missing.

Mbappé, one of the world’s most talented players, has scored eight goals in this season’s Champions League — second only to the 10 netted by Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
